I was super excited to read Gaston by Kelly DiPucchio as my March book to our John Swett classes! Starting yesterday and reading much of today and next week the student/teacher reviews so far have been phenomenal!
This is actually the first book I've read to classes where I've been able to talk in a French accent, which the kids LOVED! Our Student of the Month theme for March is Friendship and we had some great discussions in class about being true to yourself, which I feel is woven throughout the story.
1st grader yesterday - "Mr. Welcome, if I try to be someone that I'm not, I won't find good friends to hang out with."
Read Gaston for yourself, it's a great story to spark conversation and also make you smile!
